Go Green, Home Seller in 17837

I am considering sale of a property in Kenilworth with a great location, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a 100 x 100 lot size. The structure needs paint.

Asked by Go Green, 17837 Mon Oct 12, 2009

May the home be remodeled as a double, or two family?

Go Green,

I've gotten many inquiries this year from Home Buyers (particularly first-time homebuyers)
that are interested in purchasing a 2-family home. What I usually begin with is to determine
(from the Listing Agent or the town records) is whether the house is indeed a "legal 2-family".
This is key and other Agents will advise their prospective Buyers to check on this also. I suggest
that you check with the town (in this case Kenilworth) to determine what the zoning is for that
particular block/house. You don't want to proceed with the work (and $$) if you aren't going to be able to legally rent it as a 2-family if that is part of your plan. Most legal 2-family homes have separate
utilities (heat, electric, water) , separate compliant entrances, mailboxes, etc. A lot also depends upon whether you're doing this for yourself (so you can be the Landlord to 2 units, or owner occupy one and rent the other?), or whether you are undertaking this in the hopes of making it a more appealing property to sell.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
